WHILE WE WAIT
WHILE WE WAIT - ISLE OF RAASAY DISTILLERY
While waiting for the new Raasay whisky, they have crafted a single malt, aptly called Raasay While We Wait (and you'll see that the wait will be worth it!), that demonstrates their whisky making skills and offers a tantalizing taste of what’s to come from the Isle of Raasay Distillery.
This limited edition whisky combines two expressions from one distillery – one peated, one unpeated – finished in French oak Tuscan red wine casks. The result: a single malt whisky of uncommon provenance.
NOSE: A welcome smokiness on first nosing, mixed with red berries, lemon and grassy notes. With more time; pear, tangerine and melon.
PALATE: Dry peatiness on the palate, mixed in with red wine notes. A good dash of orange zest from the nose.
FINISH: Oaky and buttery finish.

woodcock, venison, creamy blue cheese, bacon, haggis.
